Jelly fishbowl

My birthday is officially the most depressing day of the year

I was going to mention this on Monday, but to be honest I couldn't built up the motivation for anything at the start of the week (a self-fulfilling statement?) Apparently I have the misfortune to celebrate my birthday on what...

Why won't MT talk to me?

My Movable Type installation has stopped emailing me when I receive comments. I've tried retyping and even completely changing the email address it has for me but no avail. It's still not talking to me. It appears to have stopped...

And...

And it's my birthday on Monday and people keep asking me what I want. I haven't got a clue to be honest. Any suggestions?...

Phew!

It's been a busy old week, all in all. On Sunday night I DJed at a staff party for The Entertainment Agency's biggest client (for free). I really didn't want to as I'd got work the next day but there...

U2 promotes Birmingham

Birmingham has traditionally suffered from a bit of an image problem. It tends to be the butt of many jokes. I've worked in Birmingham, off and on, for about 8 years. It has never been quite as bad as people...

What Sundays are for...

Today we took the boys on the train at Chasewater Light Railway. They absolutely loved the short 10 minute trip. So much so that we're thinking of taking out a Family annual membership so that we can take them on...

PalmOne Treo 600 / 650 Quandary
